How to Report Fastag Fraud and its Fraud KYC Process!!

A lot of us are aware of the need to have Fastag and KYC with us to drive on the highway. Both the documents ensure we are paying toll and adhering to rules of the highway, respectively. But what happens when there is an issue with our Fastag or KYC? What measures do we take if we think someone has stolen our Fastag or KYC information? In this article, I’ll give you some insights into these questions and more.


What is a fake/fraudulent fastag?

Using a fraudulent fastag means that one party is attempting to take advantage of Kentucky’s toll road facilities. This is done by scanning your tag while on another person’s vehicle or multiple vehicles at once without paying for any of those trips. These situations are then reported as an unpaid trip that you, as a legitimate traveler, had taken. The stolen money is returned back into your bank account which would appear as if it was an error on E-ZPass account however it is actually fraud or in some cases identity theft depending on how much information they have obtained from you or someone else using your name and/or tag number. Although these incidents are rare, they do happen; keep reading below on how to ensure you don’t fall victim.


One Way To Prevent A Fake Or Fraudulent

If you can prevent it, don’t give out any fastag numbers. Be suspicious of anyone who asks for one; if you want to offer a free trip or discount to a friend, ask for a work email address instead. If someone requests your fastag number via social media, block them immediately. After all, there’s no legitimate reason for anyone but government entities (or businesses with state contracts) to know your fastag number. And if you do share your fastags number with another driver or entity that you do business with regularly—say a rental car company—report suspicious activity immediately if they approach you about additional services that may not be necessary in their role as service provider.


What to do if you are accused of wrongdoings

Your first reaction might be to go nuclear on a client. While you may believe you have every right to do so, sometimes it is best to take a step back, discuss the issue with a colleague or supervisor. Of course, there are instances where people need a come-to-Jesus meeting but that isn’t always appropriate. One of my colleagues recently had an opportunity for a come-to-Jesus meeting—with his new boss! Even though he felt he was right about what needed to happen, he thought better of it because of his long-term career aspirations within that company. This isn’t something everyone would do; however, thinking outside of your personal situation can be helpful in any business conflict.


What Are The Consequences Of Wrongdoings?

The consequences are very severe as you will be required to submit a refund for any overcharge made on your fastag in addition to legal actions against you including suspension of your fastags and criminal cases. You may also have a case against yourself from victim if he files any complaint or report of fraud with National Highways Authority (NHA). Make sure that you call NHA call center at 0800-111-995 for further details about cancellation policy, reasons for cancellation, etc. It is strongly advised that you don’t try such fraudulent activities otherwise legal action shall be taken against you by National Highways Authority (NHA) and other related authorities.
